Matthew Good lyrics

Silent Army In The Trees

What will you find, where will you be?
When you got to trade for company
Those plastic guns for infantry
For a silent army in the trees

Well this ain't the woods behind the house
There ain't nobody screaming out
For you to come inside and eat
You're just holding your friends and watching them bleed

Wore camouflage on Halloween
A plastic bag, an M16
Door to door and house to house
There ain't nobody handing it out

Yeah nothing's ever what it seems
When you're kicking in teeth
And wishing it dreams[??]
Just plastic guns and infantry
For a silent army in the trees

Baby don't you let me down
A world away and still somehow
Can't shake the feeling that you're out
With another man's arms wrapped tight around you

At night it's cold
We sit and freeze
Running red lights in our Humvees
Never thought I'd live to see see the day, I'd be
Afraid of little kids playing in the streets

Well this ain't the woods behind the house
There ain't nobody screaming out
For you to come inside and eat
You're just holding your friends and watching them bleed

I'm on fire
I'm all ice on the outside [??]
That old man in the sky
Well he's all ice on the outside
